Advance care planning (ACP) is an important component of person-centred healthcare. It is an on-going process wherein we communicate our wishes on the type of care we want based on our values and preferences.
ACP provides us with choice and control at a time when we have lost the capacity to voice our wishes. But despite its importance, few Australians have completed ACP or an advanced care directive (ACD). Positive views toward ACP do not necessarily result in more end-of-life conversations.
